Eh, I'm bothered as it seems to not resemble any actual deaths in the film but eh...



Fantastic film. My third foray into Herzog, but my first of his that's not a remake or documentary. Like a hybrid of "A Heart of Darkness", and "Lord of the Flies". Fantastically tense film making, with a nice bit of black humor to boot.

It's so page-lickingly beautifully bittersweet though.

Anyway, as of last Wednesday:



It got a bit too action-packed for the later half, the plot was a bit less clever without the brilliant finisher that the first one had, and the overused slow-mo started to get a bit annoying, but as a whole I enjoyed it.

I really like that poster. It has the most tasteful use of numbers to cover nipples I've ever seen. It was also a pretty good movie, though I can't decide whether I liked the Swedish or American version better.

Fantastic film. I'm usually iffy about Mafia epics, but this one is rather brilliant. Released sometime in the 80s. Not quite as good as 'Goodfellas', but a **** of a lot better than the popcorny 'Scarface', or the dreadfully dull illogically plotted 'The Godfather'. Very well written, acted, and directed. Probably one of the scummiest, grittiest crime movies I've seen, but it's very well plotted, and fantastically put together.

Been watching a shed load of movies recently for obvious reasons but I don't want to clog up the forum with endless posters so here's a list:

A-Team. Mainly a pile of crap. 2/5
Tron: Legacy. I liked it (hides). 3.5/5
Salt. Decent film, great action, good acting but I guessed the last 15 mins which is not always a good sign. 3.5/5
Devil. Very decent short and sweet 70 min psychological thriller. 4/5
Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. How it looks: 5/5, How it appealed 2/5
The Fighter. NOT what I was expecting at all which was definitely a bonus. 4.5/5
Transformers 2 whatever the frig it is called. 0.1/5. Terrible. I had a headache within 10 minutes.
Bonded By Blood. If you have seen the Brit crime film Rise Of The Foot Soldier then this is a full length version of the last 30 mins of that film which is not good as some of the actors from Rise play different characters in this film so it makes it slightly redundant. A generous 3/5 nevertheless.

some Singaporean horror-comedy by Jack Neo called The Ghosts Must Be Crazy

i don't suppose it'll make sense taken out of its Singaporean/Malaysian ethocentric context, but it was pretty funny and scary to me - 8/10

Really? I've always seen Scott Pilgrim as pretty much flawless. Especially the humor. It's a teen comedy with some originality, and one of the few that actually succeeds in maintaining sympathy for the loser main character.



Probably one of the most fiercely anti-semitic things I've ever seen. Pretty much flat out portrays the Jews as a powerful black magic cult, continually using the star of David juxtaposed to fearful scenes. Which is strange because it's actually based of Jewish folklore. Anyway, It's a pretty damn good film. By German Expressionists standards, it's quite accessible(May not be the quality of say Dr.Mabuse, but the first film was 5 hours long, and full of details).

I'd say it's quite well plotted, the actual story arc is fairly well thought out. There's some silliness(A child debilitating the golem in the end by tricking him with an apple?), but generally a decent film for those who can stomach films of it's slow, laborious, dated variety, and aren't bothered by it's very strange, and dated, Jewish stereotypes.

Really? I love Scott Pilgrim in terms of the visuals and the humour but the protagonist is a douchebag. I couldn't sympathise with him in the slightest.

Well, I just felt he was written with a less dated, more realistic, and understanding viewpoint of the awkward teenager than most. Like, as if the culture being represented was well understood by writers/director. Which usually falls flat in most movies of the variety.

Which is strange because the film is so abstract.
